This is the second year VocalEye will partner with producers Mortal Coil to provide live description for guests with vision loss. This year’s theme is DAY OF THE DEAD, a time to remember our loved ones and to celebrate the festival of life. You’ll be serenaded by a mariachi band of cockroaches, ride the train through the tunnel of flames with the Aztec Lord and Lady of Death, and picnic in a gorgeous graveyard where friendly souls return to dance with a twelve foot skeleton.
If the Ghost Train sounds too intense for your littlest goblins, there are other fun Halloween activities and displays they can enjoy like the Haunted Maze, Creatures of the Night and the Spooky Barn (admission is $2 for the Spooky Barn). Face painting is available for $3 and up. Treat yourself to some hot buttered organic popcorn, caramel apples, hot chocolate, salty pretzels or other tasty snack at the friendly concession stands.
